Hazrat 'Uthmaan (radhiyallahu 'anhu) (20)

Equipping the Expedition of Tabook (continued)

Hazrat ‘Abdur Rahmaan bin Samurah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that when Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was preparing for the expedition of Tabook, Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) brought one thousand gold coins to him in a cloth and placed them in his blessed lap. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) began to turn the coins with his blessed hand and continued to say, “Nothing will harm ibn ‘Affaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) after the action he has done today (i.e. nothing will harm him and prevent him from entering Jannah, as he has secured the divine acceptance of Allah Ta‘ala through this deed).”

(Musnad Ahmed #20630)

Equipping the Expedition of Tabook

Hazrat ‘Abdur Rahmaan bin Khabbaab (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates the following:

I was present when Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was encouraging the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) to equip the army and contribute towards the expedition of Tabook. On that occasion, Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) stood and said, “O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! I undertake to contribute one hundred camels with their complete saddlery (saddle blankets and saddles) in the path of Allah.”

Reciting the Entire Qur’aan Majeed in One Rakaat

Hazrat ‘Uthmaan bin ‘Abdir Rahmaan (rahimahullah) narrates the following:

I once stood behind the Maqaam-e-Ebrahim performing salaah, and it was my intention that no person will surpass me in performing salaah at the Maqaam-e-Ebrahim that night. While I was there, I suddenly perceived that there was a man behind me. The man tapped me, but I did not glance to see who it was. When the man tapped me for a second time, I glanced and saw that he was none other than Hazrat ‘Uthmaan bin ‘Affaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). Out of respect for him, I moved and made space for him. Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) then came forward. He commenced performing salaah and recited the entire Qur’aan Majeed in a single rakaat. After completing his salaah, he left.

(Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah #8678)

Glad Tidings of Jannah

Hazrat Abu Moosa (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates the following:

I was once in the blessed company of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) in one of the orchards of Madinah Munawwarah when a person came and sought permission to enter the orchard. Hearing the person’s request, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said to me, “Allow him to enter and give him the glad tidings of a high stage in Jannah.” I thus opened the door for the person and found him to be none other than Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). I conveyed to him the glad tidings which Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) had mentioned, at which he praised Allah Ta‘ala in gratitude.

Purchasing a Well in Jannah

When the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) migrated to Madeenah Munawwarah, the water that was found in Madeenah Munawwarah was difficult for them to drink due it being bitter. However, there was a Jew who had a well of sweet water named Roomah, and he used to sell the water of this well to the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum).

Glad Tidings of Martyrdom

Hazrat Anas (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) once ascended the Mountain of Uhud with Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), Hazrat ‘Umar (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). The mountain then began to tremble and shake (out of the excitement of these blessed personalities placing their feet on it). Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) stamped his mubaarak foot on the mountain and addressed it saying, “Be still, O Uhud, for upon you are none other than a Nabi, a Siddeeq and two martyrs.”

(Saheeh Bukhaari #3686)

One of the Asharah Mubasharah:

Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was one of the ten Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) who were given the glad tidings of Jannah by Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) in one gathering.

Marriage to Hazrat Ummu Kulthoom (radhiyallahu ‘anha):

After Hazrat Ruqayyah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) passed away, Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) married Hazrat Ummu Kulthoom (radhiyallahu ‘anha), another blessed daughter of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).

After the demise of Hazrat Ummu Kulthoom (radhiyallahu ‘anha), Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) mentioned to Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), “If I had a third daughter (who was unmarried), I would have married her to you (as well).”

Hazrat ‘Ali (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that he heard Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) mention, “If I had forty daughters, I would have given them in marriage to Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), one after the other, until no daughter remained (i.e. after the demise of each one, I would have married him to the next daughter, until no daughters remained alive).”

Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) – Part Twelve

Written by

Hijrah to Madinah Munawwarah:

Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) and his respected family, Hazrat Ruqayyah (radhiyallahu ‘anha), eventually returned to Makkah Mukarramah from Abyssinia. They thereafter performed Hijrah to Madinah Munawwarah. When Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) arrived in Madinah Munawwarah with his respected family, he was hosted by Hazrat Aws bin Thaabit (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), the brother of Hazrat Hassaan bin Thaabit (radhiyallahu ‘anhu).

(Usdul Ghaabah 3/216)

The First Muslim to Perform Hijrah with his Family (continued):

When Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) intended performing Hijrah to Abyssinia, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said to him, “Take Hazrat Ruqayyah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) with you. I feel that each of you will support and encourage the other to persevere.”

After a while from the time of their departure, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) asked Hazrat Asmaa (radhiyallahu ‘anha), the respected daughter of Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), to enquire regarding them. After enquiring, she found Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) with her respected father, Hazrat Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). She said, “O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! I received information that Hazrat ‘Uthmaan (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) is presently travelling in the direction of the sea in the condition that his respected family, Hazrat Ruqayyah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) is seated on a saddled donkey.” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) became pleased and said, “O Abu Bakr (radhiyallahu ‘anhu)! They are the first people in the world to perform Hijrah in the path of Allah Ta‘ala after the two Ambiyaa, Nabi Lut (‘alaihis salaam) and Nabi Ebrahim (‘alaihis salaam), performed Hijrah.”

(Mustadrak Haakim #6849)
